I sit here as I type this looking for the right words to describe this chassis. While it certainly is unique, this chassis has jumped right to the top of my list for "must have" cases. At least once in your gaming PC use you just have to have a case like this. Words like wow, superb, stellar, all come to mind, but they just don't do this design justice. At the risk of sounding like an 80s surfer, the Level 10 GT is totally awesome and deserves your attention, whether you are shopping for a new case or looking over cases at a LAN event. While I didn't get the Level 10 to have a head to head comparison, the Level 10 GT takes user-friendliness and creativity to a whole new level, and that is just the exterior appeal!
Inside the case is fully appointed. There isn't anything that Thermaltake missed in this design. There are many options for clean wire management, and Thermaltake does the bulk of that for you! Capable of housing m-ATX, ATX, and even large extended ATX boards makes this a perfect choice for many builds. The installation of the drives is handled mostly outside, but the tool-less mechanisms on the 5.25" drives and the power adapter for the 3.5" bays takes it over the top. Don't forget, all of these drive trays are also capable of 2.5" drive installation as well. The hinged door is awesome; I loved the simplicity of it all. Everywhere I look, there is just so much to offer the user; it truly is astounding what Thermaltake is offering.
We haven't even had the opportunity to cover the cooling yet! Here you not only get the trio of 200mm fans along with the 140mm fan in the back, there is good performance to be had and the highest rated fan is only 16 dBA. When I powered the chassis on for testing, I was looking at the fans to make sure they were spinning correctly; it didn't seem they were on at full speed due to the lack of noise I somewhat expected to hear. I am pleased to say this chassis is very quiet while offering very good airflow and cooling performance. I played around with the louvers inside the door, and I can see these aiding multi-card setups with a more direct flow to keep the thick sandwich of cards their coolest. For my purposes I was able to angle them up and even increase the CPU coolers performance, so no matter the scale of the build, the Level 10 GT will offer you benefits.
Hopefully I haven't left anything out, as Thermaltake literally packed options into every corner of this chassis design. While the Level 10 GT is priced in direct competition with many of the key players, one of which being the 800D from Corsair I already own, to tell you the honest truth, the only reason I wouldn't use this case full time is I have a triple radiator I need to hide inside; just a personal preference. If I had a different setup or wanted to go back to a smaller loop or air cool my cards again, this would be the case I use.
So that brings us to the hard part. While the price point isn't for the budget minded, I will say that the $269.99 pricing at Newegg.com, in comparison to others in this field, is worth every stinking penny!
